    Pros

    Salesforce.com has some very good technology. They also seem to have some good dynamic leadership at the top. They have built a very strong following.

    Cons

    I had nearly 100% turnover on my team in the first year. Some people just walked out without another job. A couple just lasted a few months. There are some very arrogant, demanding people working in the field sales organization. Territories are shrinking quickly. Backstabbing is the norm for many people. Obviously there are some very good people there, but the bad apples spoil the entire bunch.

    Advice to Management

    Take action on the troubles in the field and don't ignore the bad apples. I know for a fact that VPs knew about some really bad managers, but just ignored them, letting many good people walk out the door.

  2. Innovative culture, great place to work

    Pros

    innovative culture, good compensation/perks, great product, good people, Dreamforce user conference is great, excellent holiday party, open & transparent communication from the top

    Cons

    Culture is shifting as company is growing - career paths are becoming less clear, lots of red tape to make decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more employees to work virtually.
